As usual a wonderful humorous analysis. You are one of a kind Farhana. You alone can find humor in one of the most dramatic episodes
Now my take on the episode and the background.
1. The Ana sagar lake in Ajmer is an artificial lake, with the Aravali hills as its backdrop. It is a breathtakingly beautiful spot where you can just sit and stare at the beauty of the scenery for long forgetting all your worries. What a waste of the beauty of the place. I have been there and I felt sad, the beauty of the place which is ideal for honeymooners to sit back and romance was used as a venue for Maha lake drama. Chalo koi nahin aage badte hain...
2.Bhabo is not wrong in terms of traditions. In joint families it is the eldest son who has the maximum responsibilities and he is the one who performs the last rites of his parents which can ensure their safe passage to heaven. It is his son who is expected to take over the reins of the family after him and continue the family line.
3.The epic battle of Mahabharata was fought on the issue of relative importance of the sons of two brothers.
4.Meena feeling discriminated does not gain my sympathy. When you expect rights you need to do your duties as well. There are no rights without duties. Without contributing a dime to the household and on the top of it stealing 60000k, she expects too much and does little.
5. Bhabo is not discriminating in the sense suggested.She is only following the set rules of traditional societies in the same way as the society expects her to discriminate between genders. It is the extension of the same principle.
6. Mohit as of now has no game plan to introduce Emily and that was obvious.
7. I personally believe Mohit will benefit the maximum if Suraj sets up RM2. If he introduces Emily to Bhabo and gets thrown out , he will move in with Bhaiyya. Will not spend a dime, will have a roof over his head, will have his love as his wife. Vikram will be the biggest loser.
8.I did not find the precap scary. With so many spoilers and pictures posted in IF, it is obvious the Maha lake drama will lead to Maha angan drama and then conclude.
9.I find a lot of scenes being repeated. Removing straw from hair, dancing during Christmas and now the lake main doobna. They should come up with newer ideas.
